gyllenbock (4398) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012. Hazy orange with a small white head. Quite a lot of orange and mango in this one. Also citrus and notes of cookies. Very fresh and drinkable. The finish was bitter with some notes of spices.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller/To Øl week, Ölrepubliken. Lighter amber, off-white head, lacing. Aroma: some spiciness, tropical fruits like peach and pineapple. Taste: only light ginger, peach and peach candy, maybe some other tropical fruit, toffee. I got some hints of cardamom and cinnamon, but probably only by association. Medium bodied. This was nice.

Firefly54 (228) - - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a lasting white head. I’m not too keen on the aroma, slightly soapy, phenolic, yeasty, some fruit, green apple. Thought this might be infected but it tastes great. Juicy fruit, apricot, hint of ginger, not hugely hoppy. Enjoyable but the aroma lets it down for me.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2012
Draught at Ölrepubliken on October 29, 2012
During the tap take over from Mikkeller and To Øl.
Slight bit hazy golden color, creamy off-white to yellow head. Very hoppy, floral, citrus, pine, US hops, sweet, caramel, touch of alcohol taste. Bitter and sort of spicy aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Nice and sweet, mmm.
Sweet, hoppy, spicy scent.
Taste is awesome, a bit less aBV and I could drink many of this in a row.
Don’t feel any ginger, but then I’ve noticed in the past that I don’t seem to pick up on ginger in beer.

hirigalzkar (2229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 Bottle. Pours orange, super hazy, with creamy white head. Notes of wet forrest, burned caramel, the nose sticky thing in ginger, some cooked vegetables, red grape and orange cest. Very fruity, complex and refreshing. The spices and the high abv adds a warming christmasy feel.

brnandersen (1799) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
33 cl. bottle poured in to a tulip. Lovely, slightly hazy copper-orange colour with a small white head. Aroma with lots of hops: Citrus, grapefruit, pines and floral notes. Malts are biscuits-style. Taste is medium bitter. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. Finishes bitter and spicy with ginger and citrus fruit. Nice IPA, the ginger is a good addition.

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2012
Lovely beer. Pours with a haze. Lots of aromatics on the nose. The taste is like an IPA, but then you get the hit of ginger which lasts a long time. Really nice and smooth. Great.
